WAUSAU (WAOW) - A 25-year-old Wausau man accused of firing gunshots that hit houses and a parked car during a verbal confrontation was sentenced to nine months in jail on Wednesday.
In a plea bargain, Carl Follie pleaded no contest to two counts of second-degree recklessly endangering safety, online court records said. Prosecutors originally had charged Follie with first-degree recklessly endangering safety.
Investigators said Follie fired the shots about 3 a.m. March 23 following a verbal argument that started at a Wausau convenience store and moved to a street on the city's east side.
Police said gunshots that Follie fired hit two houses and a parked car. No one was hurt.
Marathon County Circuit Judge Mike Moran ordered that Follie be given credit for four months already served in jail, according to online court records. The judge placed Follie on five years probation, with the condition that he serve 10 hours of community service each week if he is not working or going to school.
Investigators said Follie had a state permit to carry a concealed weapon and had a .40-caliber pistol with him.
Follie told investigators he fired over the top of the people confronting him as warning shots because one had a gun, police said.
